I have been reading through YDKJS for a while now. And I am about to finish the 3rd book, this and object prototype. I wrote down every code snippet I saw, try to understand every bit of it, both the logic and the syntax. And even there are a lot of stuff that are beyond my scope for now, I still wrote them down and try to comprehend it.
Before all these I finished the “basic front end project” from free code camp’s curriculum. Finished my portfolio, as well as a simple tribute page.
bootstrap website clone
nerdfusion site clone
This morning I was trying to do some simple things using HTML and CSS I realised that I forgot a lot of the stuff I’ve learned. When I’ve done the 3rd site, bootstrap site clone, I remembered I’ve basically developed my own flow, of course when it comes to CSS and all the specifics I still need to google and ask around, but when it comes to getting things done, I was confident enough that I’ve known the whole procedure. I’ve done the nerdfusion clone site within a day or two. And I can do it without any sort of hiccups.
This morning however when I opened a new HTML file, apart from the usual HTML tags and meta tags, everything seems so new to me. I don’t even know when using bootstrap, where to put your
container-fluid thingy. where do I include “normalised CSS file” where do i include the bootstrap CDN…
All in all I am quite frustrated and after I finish this and object prototype, I may have to go back to HTML and CSS and start some new projects just to revisit all these.
Does this happen to any of you guys? Forgetting what you’ve learnt? I think when it comes to learning speed I am definitely on the slow side. I can’t devote 7,8 hours of time just to code everyday. I’ll have to admit, this morning’s incident felt like getting hit by thunder…
